I have had Samba processes that do not respond to kill either.  However, 
you can pass the kill command options that will sometimes help.  kill -9 
is the most severe, and in most cases will kill just about anything.  
(If it doesn't, you've got more serious issues with your kernel).  
However, make sure that there aren't more graceful ways first.  Do a man 
kill to see what options there are.  But, if all else fails, there is 
the -9.  I know I've had to use it more than I'd like...
